Favourite Autumn cosy coffee shops in the South of the Isle of Man

Coffee Shops for cosy days in the Isle of Man

A cosy coffee with marshallows after a long walk is such a such a lovely Autumn treat.

It's even better with an open fire and somewhere to hang up your layers. A perfect opportunity for a good chat, or to curl up and read the paper. 

Here are our favourite cafes in Port Erin, Port St Mary, Castletown and Ballasalla to while-away an afternoon doing just this.  



 Favourite cosy cafes


Whistlestop Coffee Shop

Located at Port Erin railway station, have a coffee in the original Victorian waiting room with a roaring fire, or the beautiful railway platform when the sun is out. 


Bradda Glen

We love a coffee here after a hike from Port Erin promenade, and you can enjoy the incredible view over the bay. Afternoon tea is served to when booked in advance, and you could find a sheltered spot on their gorgeous terrace if the sun is out.   

Artea Art Gallery

Enjoy a coffee or hot chocolate and rent an easel while you relax or mooch around the pop-ups showcasing local businesses.  

Port St Mary Golf Pavillion

On Mondays and Tuesdays at "Cafe Connect" you can enjoy jigsaw puzzles and board games while you have your coffee and receive a cosy reception from the family. 


The Abbey

Lovely for soup and a sandwich or afternoon tea, set in the beautiful grounds of Rushen Abbey and has a warm comfortable ambience. 


Café Red

Really welcoming and relaxed with a great menu,  Cafe Red in Port Erin is a family owned and run coffee shop and meeting place. Always a friendly smile and serves breakfasts and lunches plus cakes.


The Sugarloaf Café

Spacious, comfortable and community focused, open Friday Saturday and Sunday. Serving sandwiches, soups, cakes and coffee, inside has now re-opened to enjoy your treats in gorgeous friendly surroundings. 


The Sound Café

Spectacular views out to the Calf of Man and with floor to ceiling glass frontage, the Cafe at the Sound allows you to enjoy the views no matter what the weather. Scones are a favourite for us with an indulgent hot chocolate.


South Barrule Coffee Cottage

Open fire, cosy benches, dog friendly, and giant hot-chocolates like you may never have experienced before!!  A firm favourite for our family after a dog walk in the plantation when you head slightly North of Seaside Cottages.  


Coffee Craft Castletown

Gorgeous coffee, plus you may be surprised with the amazing quiches and pies here, an absolute must to try if you are planning lunch. More than just coffee and a perfect location at the square. 


Cornerhouse Coffee

A real favourite for us in Port St Mary, Cornerhouse Coffee, open for sitting in and takeaways with some seating in the sunshine overlooking the beach. Try the quiche (a must!).   


Bay Green

Fresh local ingredients for seasonal dishes in the gorgeous surroundings of Castletown Golf Links . We love a morning coffee here after a walk, Lovely salads or home bakes with Noa coffee, it's a place to sit, wind down, and enjoy.   


Silverdale Café

Set in the beautiful Silverdale Glen, Ballasalla, serving teas, coffees, ice creams, cakes and light lunches overlooking the gorgeous lake.


Costa Castletown

Buzzy atmosphere opposite the beautiful Castle Rushen for a well deserved cosy coffee.  On a sunny day, it's perfect to have a sofa seat next to the open doors to enjoy a chat and a catch-up. 


Foraging Vintners 

Delicious pastries to go down well with a coffee after your walk, with a beautiful view of the wild waves.
